Do you realize how insane jumping to conclusions is?
We are all mad about the current state of affairs but to march with axes to Washington now will do you no good. We need to be able to nail this down
if it has any hope of changing anything. If you think for one second that every generation didnt have a portion of the population that didnt feel
they were getting a fair shake then you are insane. History is riddled with people who attack standing powers on nothing more than a feeling. If you
dont approach this in a calm and calculated way then I guarantee that you will fail.
Find some hard evidence and then make your move. Dont simply revolt for the sake of revolution. Be smarter than that and do some research for
yourself and be the one to break this open. I am trying myself. It is difficult but its the only way.
The blatant disregard for the election process and media blackouts on a single candidate is not enough evidence for some people. Camera views on 3 of
the 4 candidates during debates, obvious favoritism between two candidates getting time to talk while the others stand there and look pretty. And we
wonder why the two candidates at the top are getting all the action while everyone else is flat out ignored and never questioned on these hot topics
and how they would handle it.
Elections are anything but fair and balanced. History does repeat itself. Sadly nothing will change until enough people unite and say no, not doing it
anymore. Problem is those people who stand up are mocked and laughed at when they at least have an alternative to try and change things. We are seeing
this now with all the negativity thrown out at Ron Paul supporters. Instead of seeing them as people who want change, they are just crazies. Reminds
me of them saying Ron Paul's nonviolence and policing the world is crazy.
Look at Syria now. Hundreds being executed by their governments, yet we have spent the last decade in a number of countries, and we cannot intervene
in Syria? Uhh, looks like the priorities are severely lacking when we can stop terrorism in those countries, yet we are helpless to do any good done
in a country that actually needs US intervention. We can fight terrorists all day because they are the enemy, yet we are letting a government kill its
people? What is government not the enemy? Is that the message we are supposed to take away from this? We should continue to let them kill their
citizens and let the economy do the fighting.
Just do some research on the four candidates left. I sure have and have multiple reasons why I shouldn't vote for 3 of them. Then again I'm just a guy
who wants some honest change, I guess changing from America's current predicament of unemployment and just scrapping buy paycheck to paycheck,
homelessness, children starving, laughable education is what people want to continue doing. Change is a scary thing, but at least it has the chance to
change into something better. I've come to the conclusion that we have to change it, or go for another ride on the merry go round where we continue to
see the same things over and over again at predetermined intervals.
People are voting with their money instead of their values. American't values have been bought on the promise of fixing the economy. Look at the
unconstitutional laws we have today. The only person who would even stand up to stop and try to halt them would be Ron Paul. Learning from history I'm
pretty sure voting with your money only brings little changes while the vast amount of everything else is anything but good.
